Transcendence by Shay Savage

It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?

Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn’t know where she came from; she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.

Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there. She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome. She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive, but beautiful, man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle. 

With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.


Heartwarming, hilarious and simply amazing!
I laughed so loud and so often, but also cried and cried!! 

This story is told in the pov of Ehd, a caveman. A CAVEMAN!
Think about what life was like back then, what their sole purpose in life was. He is man, protector, hunter, he finds a mate, makes babies, then protects and hunts for them. Done!

Ehd made my laugh and cry. His antics are hilarious! 
He can't speak, nor does he understand what speaking is. To him it's just noise... 
which gives him a head ache!
He's brave and strong, yet sensitive, sweet and unassuming.

"She may be strange; she may not know how to make baskets, and she may be very noisy, but she is my mate, and I am thrilled she is here."

Transcendence is unlike anything I have ever read and I loved it. I couldn't put it down and am unlikely to forget about Ehd and Beh anytime soon. This is one of those books that will stay with me for a very long time.
